the hunger. i fasted for one day yesterday and i was ready to punch a baby. so obama let me down a little bit. but you know who never disappoints, a ahmadinejad what a guy, right, can't live with him, can't get him to admit the holocaust really happened. all right, i don't want to say the guy has been tankers with nuclear bombs but before he walked into the u.n. that marble behind him was white. dude's radioactive. let's take a listen. >> i am here to voice the devine and humanitarian message of learned men and women of my country. a message that iran's great or ther and poet saadin presented to humanity in his eternal two-line poetry. >> jon: oh, i remember that poem. it goes something like this. al hickory al dick ory dock, the zionists can eat -- >> give me some that old time i hate your religion. >> i do not believe that muslims, christians, jews, hindu, buddhists and others have any problem among themselves. or are hostile against each other. they get along together comfortably. >> jon: ah, if by comfortably you mean with nearly constant bloodshed. i mean if you are not going to take a s
that is the other day president obama was campaigning down in virginia. he made that very remark. he was saying i know i have supporters out there in the audience but i wanted to talk to some of the folks who are watching on tv who may not be my supporters. mitt romney in some of his campaign remarks have said the same thing. so the mention are sounding a little more independent or centrist than they did in the past. >> gregg: what is curious and this is borne out by some of the polls, roughly 60% of the likely voters think the president's economic policies -- there it is -- have hurt the economy or made no difference at all. in other words, you have to add the bottom 38 plus 21. take a look at the other numbers. when asked if policies need changing, a stunning 73% said yes. how is it that an incumbent leads when voters are demanding change? >> that is the very big question of this election. mitt romney has tried to run as a change agent, but what the obama campaign has done very well is attack him in critical swing states that both candidates wanted to win. he has done a good job of disqualifyin
's up 4. so -- and we see what the actual results are. obama is now beating mitt romney. he was down. ohio polling. obama was down 8 points among people 65 and older. today he is up 1. i think that's -- and he writes persuasively that republicans, again, get smoking what they were dealing thinking that their desire to see the end of medicare, to see the entitlement state shrunk was a political message broadly decided to double down on it and put paul ryan on the ticket and went right after it. these are the results. >> i think much like playing the notorious big, you are spot on. i look at the same interges. the only thing that has changed demonstrably is seniors. seniors have been so resistant to barack obama. they've been the one constituency that had not warmed up to him at all and in 2010 they were a big reason why that wave washed up against democrats. now you actually see in iowa, in ohio in these swing states seniors moving back for one reason, medicare. the only thing special about paul ryan was this budget that he put forth that wants to voucher rise medicare. by putting him
%. and down in north carolina, the race a little closer with president obama at 48% and governor romney 46%. and out west in nevada, obama, 49%, romney, 47%. but while the president holds the overall edge, voters seem less sure as to which candidate would do a better job fixing the economy. in new hampshire, 49% believe that the president would do a better job than mitt romney. 46% believe that mitt romney would do a better job. in north carolina, 47% think that mitt romney's the man to fix the economy, slightly ahead of president obama there who's at 46%. and back out to nevada, 46% think that mitt romney will do a better job, and 47% in nevada think the president can better handle the problems in the economy. that's a question of particular interest in nevada, with of course the housing crisis being at its worst there and unemployment also being above the national average. so does mitt romney have time to make up the difference when it comes to the horse race? here's what nate silver, "the new york times" numbers guru and keeper of the famous 538 blog told nbc's david gregory for the pre
reelection. so it is with this. a key element of the obama reelection strategy has to do with perceived voter fatigue over wars, iraq and afghanistan. >> paul: tide of war are receding? >> exactly. first thing he said i ended the war in iraq. how he is binding down afghanistan. from that premise he is suggesting to people that mitt romney just might start up again because he is advised by the same people that got us into the war in iraq. >> paul: and a lot of people don't like the long years of war. how fair is the charge? >> i think people are ready to be responsive to that message. the problem is chaos adores vacuums and we are creating a vacuum in the middle east and iran. it is being created by president obama. mitt romney makes a good case. what we might end up in a war it's the policies of president obama in southeast asia and pakistani and afghanistan and in the middle east. >> patti ann:. >> paul: when you say creating a vacuum. since we left iraq and it is winding down but we didn't leave any troops there. we are staying out of syria. then, of course, the biggest problem, brett, is i
on october 11th between vice-president joe biden in connecticut. mitt romney and president obama are down for the weekend getting ready to square off in denver for the first of three presidential debates on wednesday. that's the latest from this chunk of the campaign trail. let's send it back to you. >> okay. ron mott. bob seger music background music there. >>> in today's strategy talk, president obama and mitt romney head into wednesday night's debate with the president leading in the latest polls in all nine battle ground states. at the same time, governor romney's favorability rate rgz in the low 40s which is almost 10 points lower than president obama's and three points lower than former president george w. bush at this point. voters in several swing states also say they believe president obama cares more about the needs and problems they are currently facing. this is a snapshot here of florida, ohio and pennsylvania. when you look at which candidate voters think will implement policies favoring the middle class, president obama comes out ahead of governor romney in those same three
initiative, president obama vowed to crack down on what slavery and he's not alone. mira sorvino has traveled around the world on this issue and now, she's starring in a new hollywood film, trade of innocence. earlier, i spoke with her and started by asking her how important hearing the president of the united states in a campaign year talk about this issue is. >> for all of us working on modern day slavery, it was gigantic, to have the leader of the free world say that trafficking is slavery. make no mistake about it. that was huge. the fact he said to treat victims as victims, not criminals, the gigantic, especially in the realm of underage sex trafficking because too often across our country, children and teenagers are arrested for the crime of prostitution rather than being seen through the lens as vick tills of the severest form of human trafficking. >> and a lot of these victims are, you mentioned the word prostitutes, a lot of this is sex, right? >> in this country, it's about 50/50. 50% labor trafficking. 50% sexual slavery. >> where is it happening? i know it can be happening close e
for president obama. each time he has gotten to that magical 50% has immediately dropped back down. look, if he can keep his job rating at 50 or higher, he's going to be in a good position, but he's never been able to do that. if you see that drop again, you'll continue to show polls that show this is tight. >> jen, your internal polls for the obama campaign, do they show it like gallup, like cnn or tighter like rasmusen? >> well, we're -- >> come on. >> we're not focused internally or externally on the national polls. we're focused on seven to nine states, as i'm sure the romney team is as well. some, we're close, some we have more of a lead on. but it doesn't matter because we have 38 days to go and we need our supporters to turn out. it doesn't matter unless they cast their vote. so that's what our focus is is now. turning people out. it's already game day. early voting is happening and we need to keep our focus on november 6th. >> so, matt, what is it really about? i keep hearing, people are talking about getting the base out and that it comes down to the base. we had on one of the preacher
for the fracking industry which president obama wants to shut down. ohio is not going to vote to give up its jobs by turning them over to the epa. if rob portman is a member of the ticket, that will solidify the ohio look, but i don't even think it's necessary. a very solid yes vote. the hardest of those states, virginia. virginia is hard to predict. the home of a very good senate campaign by george allen against a very good democrat, tim kane. both are former governors. there is a large military and reservists vote in virginia. that vote is sponsoring decidedly against president obama because he is definitely against the military, cutting what ought to be a 313 ship navy below 200 navy ships. cutting 20,000 marines and 8,000 army and another 20,000 sailors and airmen from the rolls. he has canceled the f-22 and numerous other weapon systems. he is messing around with military pay, benefits, retirement, and that should put mitt romney over the top in virginia, but it is a close state because of the facts. the least recession impacted state in the union is virginia. the reason the viejo is the lea
know, not only is president obama pulling ahead, but senate candidates, a lot of people thought no chance. tammy baldwin, clair mccastle, go down the line and now they are not talking so much about the republicans winning back the senate but in some circles, i heard talk of democrats taking back the house. >> not going to take back the house. let's look. so we had the primaries at the beginning of the year. that was about a whole host of candidates fighting it out between themselves. romney was really not ahead during the summer. he was making this race tighter. that's what happens over the course of the summer. then have you conventions where both parties get to see. romney -- >> virtually no bump in the obama -- got a huge bump. >> do you think he's going to get a bump when you have a democratic convention that starts basically hours afterwards? i don't know if bumps exist anymore. look to the bumps -- >> for obama though. >> but that bump is already coming down. and look at the bump we got for killing osama bin laden. that bump was gone like. this i don't know if bumps really
. the obama campaign is also down playing expectations. they say he hasn't had enough time to prepare for the debate because he's been so busy as president dealing with a series of crises in the middle east. >> chip reid in boston. thanks. >>> for more on campaign 2012, we turn to jonathan allen, a senior political correspondent from politico. jonathan, good morning to you. >> good morning, rebecca. >> i want to begin where chip left off. the president's advisors say he's been so busy dealing with international affairs coming into the debate he hasn't had a chance to prepare. some of the tlmts coming out of these international affairs, the administration's stance, for example, on what exactly happened in benghazi has recently changed. i wonder how that might impact this debate. >> i would be shocked if there wasn't some questioning from that either from the moderators or at least perhaps some attention drawn to it by mitt romney. this is a huge issue for the president, is his policy working in north africa, in the middle east? what happened there? did the administration tell the truth
enough progress to take the state. if you break it down to a graphically comment the denver metro area is about half of the state. the poster child for demographic change in the united states and how it can shift is the great state of nevada. obama is running ahead of the not as far as he did in 2008. this is a little cut off here. you can see an incredible increase of nine percentage points and those that are minorities between 2000 and 2012. you can see that there has been a decline of five percentage points in the share that are white non college. that is a very quick tour through some of the swing state of the 2008 election. -- 2012 election. maybe it is time for me to say why is this? why is this going on? why does obama have a solid lead he does? many argue that this should be an arguable reaction. the stimulus was looked upon unfavorably by lot of voters. it may have helped the economy come back. it did not turn into a picture of help. what is going on? the first factor is the economy. it is not great now. it is better than it used to be. voters can remember a few years back. so
conferences. you can look at the research on this. president obama has done more one-on-one said downs then press conferences. he likes to control the message and he would rather sit down with barbara walters and have her ask them what superpower he would like to have. host: fredericksburg, va., an airline for democrats -- -- on our line for democrats -- caller: i get tired of them talking about liberal, biased media. if there was, do you think they will allow george bush' to set p the war on allied? a lie? our country wanted to collapse, how many economic speculative to they have and the network? none of them do this? they talk about the kindness of mitt romney because he is a preacher -- printer or bishops at this church. isa pasture -- but pastor's not help his flock, you need to find another church. host: we will leave it there. guest: i don't think the news media has spent a lot of time dealing with the mormon faith. you will see some of it this week with the tax return. his charitable contributions are rather large. it is not a scandal when al gore or joe biden have charitable co
expectations very high for president obama's opponent. >> thank you. >>> and we're counting down to the first debate once again, this coming wednesday. our complete coverage begins at 7 p.m. eastern right here on cnn. let's dig a little deeper right now with ron bron steen, the editorial director of the national journal. if you're looking at all the demographics right now, where are the major differences between these two candidates? >> what you're seeing to a surprising extent in the last several weeks is president obama essentially reassembling the coalition that eleked him in 2008. >> why is that surprising? >> in 2010, democrats suffered big erosion in key parts of that coalition and also saw turnout decline. what you've got are three essential elements, young people, he's back to over 60% in most polling. minorities, he won 80% of them in 2008. he's right around that number in most polling again. and college educated white voters, he one a majority and again he's right around that number or even vietly above in polling. mitt romney is depending primarily on blue color whites and older wh

supports the law and writes about the health care for the new republic. >> obama budget says, look, we want to hold down costs to this target and we'll do our very best to accomplish that, but we're also not going to sacrifice benefits. no matter what happens, we'll make sure that seniors get the same level of benefits they're getting now. >> reporter: both obama and romney agree that health care needs to be more affordable. they just disagree how about how to do that. dr. sanjay gupta, cnn, reporting. >>> and one of the most contentious issues dividing president obama and governor romney, what to do with million of illegal immigrants living, studying and working in america. next hour another issue, illegal immigration. >>> u.s. officials confirm that the government's chemical weapons are on the move and the opposition claims to have captured some. >>> plus, three fishermen are rescued in the gulf of mexico when their boat overturned and, yes, it is all caught on tape. ♪ [ male announcer ] its lightweight construction makes it nimble... ♪ its road gripping performance makes it a cadilla
. if the election was today, president obama has command. in battleground states from nevada, up to new hampshire and down to florida in nine battle ground states, the president is in command of this race and that's not an assessment of the polls, although he has an advantage in the polls but republicans in the romney campaign as well. that doesn't mean this race is over. there are a lot of things can happen. the debate next week. there is a recognition inside the romney campaign that governor romney needs to sort of find within him to make a better argument, a clear argument through advertising and other things. and we still have time to see him do that. gwen: and we are talking dozens of polls that we have been all reading and consuming for the last couple of weeks, to the point that people say, should we believe these polls especially when they make a uniform turn, what are you hearing about that? >> the polls are moving in the direction that jeff talked about, so there might be that type of fault or fault with another poll, but you can't ignore the can cumulative direction of all these polls.
-one-on-one presidential debates while this is romney's first. the obama campaign is also down playing expectations. they say he hasn't had enough time to prepare for the debate because he's been so busy as president dealing with a series of crises in the middle east. >> chip reid in boston. thanks. >>> for more on campaign 2012, we turn to jonathan allen, a senior political correspondent from politico. jonathan, good morning to you. >> good morning, rebecca. >> i want to begin where chip left off. the president's advisors say he's been so busy dealing with international affairs coming into the debate he hasn't had a chance to prepare. some of the tlmts coming out of these international affairs, the administration's stance, for example, on what exactly happened in benghazi has recently changed. i wonder how that might impact this debate. >> i would be shocked if there wasn't some questioning from that either from the moderators or at least perhaps some attention drawn to it by mitt romney. this is a huge issue for the president, is his policy working in north africa, in the middle east? what happen

and from the libyan people. there should be no doubt we will be relentless in tracking down the killers and bringing them to justice. >> rick: president obama addressing the national general assembly on tuesday and how was the message received by the press? he didn't mention terror attacks. he talked a lot about youtube clip. how do you think the media responded? >> i think it was a forgettable speech. charles krauthammer was babbling. it's not the typical of media. netanyahu stole the show with the cartoon, right out of rocky and bullwin klef. that will be most famous images this year. >> rick: if you were following on twitter while he was giving his speech he was being mocked for using an illustration people said was car tuneish. >> he was supposed to draw a nuclear bomb instead of a symbol for a bomb. the outrage he would do this was so dispositive portion at. there was no outrage what he was saying, the idea of iran having a nuclear weapon was not offensive but that cartoon.

falling gen. a new report showing the median household income heading south last month. now down more than 8% since president obama took office. now governor romney is out saying his plan to overhaul our massive tax code will put more money back in your pocket, but will it work? hi, everybody. welcome to "forbes on fox." steve, what do you think of this romney tax plan? >> it increases take-home pay, middle class family, $2,000 extra in their take-home pay, and more importantly it reduces the price of doing work, being productive and taking risks. lowering that price, lowering tax rates. that's the way to get the economy going. worked for kennedy, for reagan, worked in the early part of the last decade. it will work again. >> we have to do something. since the recovery began, by the way, june 2009, household incomes are down 5.7%. that's since the recovery. when you're in a recovery, incomes are supposed to go up. >> yeah. what's disstressing and concerning is, at this point i don't know what governor romney has in mind. he's been saying all along he'll reduce taxes and shows up in ohio --
for american households down about 5,000 bucks in five years. very bad. health insurance premiums up 18% in three years. and going higher under obama care. awful situation. gas prices up 106% since mr. obama took office. a complete disationer. national debt up $5.4 trillion under the president and going higher. a catastrophe and while salaries for workers are flat or down, corporate profits are up, signaling more economic imbalance in america. now, it used to be that economic steps like those would doom, doom an incumbent president. that's not happening this year. barack obama is not even conceding that his policies haven't worked. he is essentially saying they will work if you give me four more years. millions of americans seem to be on board with that as the president's poll numbers are higher than most expected. the rasmussen daily tracking poll today has mr. obama up by 1%, 47%, to 46% over mitt romney. in the 11 swing states that will decide the election, rasmussen has the race tied 46% 46%. 3% remain undecided in the swing states. that's much closer than most of the other polling
for what do i need to know for next week. tracy? >> promises, promises. president obama said our insurance premiums were going to go down $2500 by the end of his first term? up $2400. >> all righty. todd? >> sam adams oktoberfest hits the stores today. a big winner. stocks up 20% by thanksgiving. >> you had to get the beer in there. jim? >> i think the iphone 5, one of the best ancillary plays on that is sprint. you could see a 25% increase in sprint through the iphone by christmas. >> without the maps would be nice. jonathan? >> israel is a first world in a sea of tribalism and destruction. eis rows as netanyahu spoke at the u.n. i'm looking at it long term for my fund. >> neil cavuto will

in voting for it until the very end when she saw she is going down. but here now, president obama has inherited the war in afghanistan and continued it, and the strong wars are terrorizing populations. i encourage everyone to look at the report. in pakistan, the people are terrorized. i'm talking about the civilian populations. they are afraid to go out, to send their kids to school. who knows who will be hit next? >> let's take another call. this one comes from brian on the line for republicans. critics like question is about -- caller: my question is about jeffrey in malta and the jobs going overseas. i would like your opinion on that. guest: when u.s. jobs are -- caller: my question is about jeffrey imelt and the jobs going overseas. guest: by a bank that is a very big problem when u.s. jobs are exported overseas. there is no question about it. there has to be a program in this country. we have not seen the democrats or republicans giving huge tax incentives for corporations to stay, not to go overseas. to is quite remarkable. mitt romney, who was the head of bain capital, when you
as the presidential debates approach, a spokesperson starts down playing how his candidate will do, hoping that reports will be that barack obama or mitt romney did better than expected. it has nothing to do with who is really scoring more points and it doesn't fool anyone. we have all seen this kind of public relations stunt before no one is buying it. both candidates are smart and articulate, and skilled at this kind of debate, both campaigns and their candidates should be focusing on the serious questions that need to be answered. here are a few, for mitt romney governor you have attacked the individual mandate requirement in the president's health care plan, but approved it for massachusetts, and you, newt gingrich, and the heritage foundation argued it was the key to sound health care economics until barack obama adopted explain why the individual mandate is no longer essential to health care economics. second question, put aside the language about foreign policy and the rhetoric about not apologizing, name who things you would do differently about iran and ru
of three voters is over 65, romney trails president obama by four points. 51% to 47%. in ohio, romney is down eight points, 52% to 44%. and it gets about the same z mbers in virginia, eight points behind. in those three states, of senior voters who said medicare is extremely important 53% are going with president obama, 42% mitt romney. we asked dean reynolds to tell us more about the medicare factor. >> the first step to a stronger strcare is to repeal obamacare. oboos) because it represents the worst of both worlds! >> reporter: a week ago when republican vice presidential candidate paul ryan spoke about medicare to the american association of retired persons in new orleans, he got an earful. >> the law turned medicare boo into a piggy bank for obamacare! (boos) >> reporter: that frosty reaction is borne out in new polling, both by cbs news and others which found more people thought the president would do a better job handling medicare than governor romney. the "washington post" and kaiser foundation surveyed voters in virginia, ohio, and florida. in those states that found that saj
. >> we do know in 2008 the first video got 20 million views, and hundreds of people actually went down to florida and talked to their grandmas and grandpas to get them to vote for obama as it has been proven to help turn florida blue. the video that came out yesterday already has 2 million views. >> jennifer: that's fabulous. >> yeah it felt like we broke the internet for about five opinions. >> jennifer: what is going on there? why is this the best way to get the attention of millennial voters? >> okay. well i would say first i think the comedic videos they allow people to kind of have a point of entry that maybe they wouldn't necessarily have for some wonkier ideas. i think millennials are more aware of the obstacles that truly stan in our way. hope and change is back but it's more mature. >> jennifer: there is a poll out today from pew which says that youth engagement is falling and registration is declining for young voters under the age of 30. that they are 50% less likely essentially to be following the campaign closely, so hopefully what you are doing is

the expectations game. tamping down a little bit. let me bring back maria cardona and amy holmes. amy, as you see it, who's got the advantage, president obama who's done so many, or mitt romney who frankly had to do it just to get the nomination? >> exactly. well, the president obviously has the incumbent advantage and he's been president the last four years and dealt with these issues on the front lines at 1600 pennsylvania avenue. as you mentioned, mitt romney as the gop nominee, he had to go through quite a gauntlet. i'm not sure that one person has the edge over the other. i think the question will be, you know, who gets off the best line and who's able to address the voters' concerns most directly and most pervasively. >> maria, same question. who do you think has the edge? a lot of people have been saying, mitt, where are the details? who do you think that is advantage right now? >> well, it's interesting, because going into it on issues and substance, i think that president obama has the advantage, because he's the one who has been a lot more clear and has offered a lot more specifics on w
